Today, while supermarket shopping with my mum I had one of those moments. A moment you can’t explain, but one that people who are very close to their mum’s will understand.
I’d wandered off to find something in an aisle, then come back to find her in another aisle. As I was walking towards her from the other side of the store it hit me. Just watching her, looking at something on a shelf, deciding which brand to buy. It was just one of those mundane, everyday moments. But for that 30 seconds as I watched her my eyes teared up and I had to tell myself to pull it together so as not to cry in the middle of the supermarket.
While it’s not a life changing moment, and you’re probably wondering why I’ve even bothered blogging it, it’s a snapshot of 30 seconds of my life that means a lot to me. It’s something I want to remember.
Even writing about it makes me teary.
I love my mum to pieces, and she really is the person I will miss most.
